Diablo Cody Talks Scary Movies

By Jen Chaney

A Jen Chaney dispatch -- with video -- from the Toronto Film Festival.

If anyone was planning to ask Diablo Cody to write the script for the upcoming remake of "Poltergeist," they shouldn't bother. As a hardcore horror fan, she knows all about the "Poltergeist" curse and says she wants nothing to do with an (allegedly) lethal franchise.

"If they offered me $5 million, I still wouldn't do it," she told me during an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Cody has been promoting her own shocker-comedy effort "Jennifer's Body."

But "Poltergeist" was just one of the scary movies Cody and I discussed. I asked the "Juno" scribe to tell me about her five favorite horror flicks and her favorite female characters in that same genre. Want to know which films and characters she mentioned? Watch the following video, home skillet, and find out.
